Whether you use compression or injection molded, water-based processes and whether these are for CSD, water or food applications and are made of opaque or clear plastic, we have the expertise to streamline your plastic bottle closure inspections. Using our patented CHROMAPULSE™ illumination, lighting can be optimized for a diverse range of cap /liner colors and structural configurations, ensuring that you have reliable bottle cap and closure inspection results. Combined with our RETRO-SPEC™ inspection interface, finding plastic closure defects has never been easier.

In addition, Pressco is experienced in both star-wheel and conveyor configurations and with single or multi-camera applications. If desired, Pressco can even provide the material handling in either single or over/under conveyor configurations. Our flexible platform design allows connection of multiple lines to a single interface. On the filling side, Pressco has a turn-key material handling solution to ensure against filler downtime by removing damaged, inverted and out-of-round closures before they can cause problems.
